HSPU
AMRAP
1-1-1-1-1
KTE's
MU's

and know there is a workout in there

Re: you know you crossfit when...

You know you crossfit when you breathe a deep breathes and psych up at hearing 3-2-1- GO ...EVEN IF it has nothing to do with a workout.

(I caught myself amping up a bit last time I played mario kart wii because it blink 3-2-1 Go )

Re: you know you crossfit when...

I actually had a good conversation with my neighbor the other night that reminded me of this type of thread. I took the dog for a walk and decided to load up about 75 lbs of sand in my ALICE to make it more interesting. Anyways, my neighbor stops me and asks:
"Hey man, what are you training for?"
Me "What do you mean?"
Neighbor "I always see you doing crazy **** in your garage, running around with your backpack (ALICE), and flipping that wheel (tractor tire) all over town and wondered what you were training for."
Me "I guess I'm training for life man."
Neighbor "Oh..."

Living in a town of 400 I'm pretty sure everyone out here thinks I'm mentally ill or some psychopath killer.

Re: you know you crossfit when...

I've always thought the "What are you training for?" question was perfectly legitimate.
